In memory of
Robert Burn PURDON
PURDON, Rev. Dr. Robert Burn 1940 – 2017 Burn passed peacefully surrounded by his family on February 10, 2017 at La Maison au Diapason in Bromont in his 77th year. Mourned by his wife, the love of his life, Margaret Zurbrigg and by his children Marc (Cindy), Luke (Denise), and Anna (Michael), and by his grandchildren Sierra, Saige and Nathan, Megan and Tristan. He will be missed by his brothers Ken and John (Sigrid), and by his sisters Marie Rehkoph (Blaine), Helen Owen (Doug) and Lorraine (Enrique), by sister-in-law Eleanor (Terry), and by many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews. After a rich and full professional life, Burn prioritized family values. He cherished his garden and home in Sheffington and the family times there and at "the cabin" at Lac Poisson. Burn filled his family with joy and happiness until his last moments. He lived life with passion for music, social justice and the Earth, and always with compassion, laughter and dignity. We want to thank the CLSC palliative home care team, especially Marie-Hélène Duhamel, Nathalie Munger and Dre Nadine Leblanc and the Maison au Diapason, Bromont. A celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, February 18, 2017 at Granby United Church, 101 Principale, Granby, Qc. The family will receive condolences starting at 1:00 p.m., followed by the service at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to La Maison au Diapason, Bromont, or the Mission and Service Fund of the United Church of Canada.
